Did You Suffer From Cement or Concrete Burns?

We Take a Stand for Injured Construction Workers

Construction workers who regularly come in contact with building materials like concrete, mortar, plaster, grout, stucco, and terrazzo need to take proper care in order to avoid concrete or cement burns. This condition can cause serious and potentially permanent damage to the worker’s skin, and most often affects workers who handle wet building materials. If these workers are not given proper protective clothing and the opportunity to frequently wash the excess material from their skin, then they are at considerable risk of harm.

Call our firm at (212) 577-9325 today to discuss your legal options with an experienced attorney in NYC.

If you suffered serious injuries from a concrete burn, you may have a number of legal options available to seek the compensation you need to cover expenses and damages incurred. At The Perecman Firm, we understand what it takes to fight for and secure the compensation you deserve. We have worked with thousands of injured people since we first opened our doors 40 years ago. Contact us today to discuss your case with a New York City construction accident lawyer.

What Kind of Damage Can Cement Burns Cause?

The key ingredient in the building materials listed above is commonly known as portland cement. While this binding material can be incredibly useful for construction work, it can also permanently damage a workers’ skin. Some of the injuries caused by cement burns include:

  • Hardened or dead skin
  • Blisters
  • Green or black skin
  • Inflammation
  • Scaling
  • Disfigurement
  • Disability

A key danger of these types of injuries is the fact that early symptoms may not even be noticed until it’s too late. In far too many cases, workers affected by a cement burn don’t even feel the irritation until it’s too late and permanent damage has occurred. This is why it is so important for these workers to have easy access to washing stations to frequently wash the excess material from their skin and to prevent contact in the first place by having protective clothing that adequately covers all exposed body parts. Failure to provide access to these stations, and failure to adequately warn workers to the dangers of concrete burns are serious hazards.
